Ever wondered what would happen if Girls' Lena Dunham auditioned for Zero Dark Thirty? New York comedienne Chelsea Davison did and recorded a two-minute skit and put it on YouTube.

It's only been two days and already she has just under 200,000 hits.

The Oscar nominated movie about the capture and killing of Osama Bin Laden, has garnered controversy for its depiction of torture as a legitimate means of obtaining information - something the US government has strenuously denied.

Davison's video did only cost about $100 to produce - including the purchase of "a dozen delicious cupcakes" and showcases Dunham's character Hannah auditioning for the controversial flick.

"It's always fun to parody the stuff you admire," Davison told The Daily Beast.

"[Dunham] has such a unique voice, both in how she speaks and in the things she says," Davison said.

"Because the character makes everything about her, I knew I wanted to find a very serious, totally inappropriate setting in which to put her. It really magnifies those traits when you see it against something so different."

Sample dialogue from the 'audition':

"If I really have to waterboard you, that is really gonna scar me, like, emotionally."
